Gigi is working on a size 10 Bias slip dress. It is draped, and the paper pattern is ready. Need to sew

it for a grade over break

Draped a tent dress in class on ?the client ?. Made the pattern.  Want to make it for myself. Not a bias dress,

cut on grain.  Having problems with the curve of the hemline.  Also, not sure if I want to give it a facing,

or finish it with bias tape. Fabric that wants to be the dress is matronly, dark blue with white blips
